Ok folks heres the problem: 02 Dakota V6 4x4 70,000 mi. No check engine
light and no codes when keyed on/off 3 times. Truck would not start this
AM. Hasn't run in about a week. Weather is getting colder,damper and the
battery is original. Tried jumping from wifey's car. No start. Let it sit
on the cables for a while with wifey's car running and tried again--no
start. Turns over but no start almost sounds like no fuel but tank is full.
On third try took the pedal to the metal (not usual way to start it) and she
finally kicked over but as soon as I let off pedal she stalled. Did this a
few times and she finally held on after I sat with my foot on the gas and
kept it idling at about 1K. She now sits idling all by herself in the
driveway--thought I'd let her warm up and see if getting rid of some
moisture helps. I expect I need a battery but something else is wrong--any
ideas out there? TIA for any advice offered.
